the virus grows, if you follow the metaphor that bullying is a systemic virus, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that

environment go in with the right knowledge and the right attitude and you can see the tactical unit at the bottom there and the crisis response civil military operations center that was there to provide the command and control of those tactical units responding on the military side, this provided a perfect environment and opportunity for them to be able to interact with the civilian partners and provide the most appropriate response and understanding. very complex and again i just want to reiterate that the military, we know when we're responding in this type of environment that we're not coming in with the heavy capability and saying don't worry, we're here to help you and take over, we're here to complement and support you with the appropriate ways that you request our needs. the next few slides that i'm going to go over here shows some of the military capability and how some of those responses that we did during this exercise can also be applied at home in a domestic environment such as a response to maybe an earthquake here in san francisco. so the first part up there, you see

, tony testified in front of the environment and public works committee on why we need to pass and get the safe cosmetics out there on the floor of that senate, he did a fantastic job and i stole this off the video which is archiving, you can watch it, and this act would call for quick action on the chemicals of greatest concern, would increase access to basic health and safety information on chemicals, would use the best science to assess safety, so not old science but new science, would seek to protect vulnerable populations like we talked about way back when, right, prenatally and in pregnancy, those ones that are maybe more vulnerable to chemical exposures and also to reduce exposures in communities with unfair burden of exposures, we know that very often, poor communities, communities of color, communities with less resources are exposed to higher levels of chemicals so we have to reduce that unfair burden because they already have enough unfair burden, so that calls for some comprehensive changes and we want to see those happen. the senate is not likely to reconvene and vote on t

with the interest-rate environment, actually. i know this sounds counter fed focusesut the on demand and credit. under no circumstances with the current political risk and interest-rate environment would i put a dollar a my own money into the mortgage market. the returns are not there. so, again, we have to get through those issues. fed focuses maybe i will be the only one to lou's point about the attorney general's. anytime there is something in the paper about eminent domain, there is one more reason for an investor not to put money in the market. so what are the reasons the government dominates the market? nobody else is willing to make those loans at that price with that amount of risk, which again, we do not by making things cheaper, but by what washington usually does, by hiding the cost, rather than eliminating. >> sarah? illuminating it. >> if you look at the amount of capital available for the parts of the market whose structure is well understood and where there is confidence it will be there in the future -- thinking of the private mortgage insurance market --applaud there is a tonf

environment that was createded as a resulted and that was our issue. >> thank you, anybody else? that is funny, i had "being told" written down, too. i agree that you cannot tell a business that "they have to" come to your meeting. going to an organization that you sit on the board is an easy way out and you are not really going out into the community and integrating into the neighborhood, and presenting your permit to people who may offer a different view an the organization that you actually belong to, or are a board member to. so there is definitely in my eyes an issue with only going to your organization. however, at the same time, they have been there for forever and they have been open late for forever and i personally do not think that we should withhold these permits, but i am going to speak to condition no. 2; if we do accept these proposed conditions for lori's diner that it end with a period after "30 days and strike, be made "available to the, et cetera." >> is lori's central? >> one is central and one is tenderloin. >> has central station received complaint
